"We have a prisoner who says she's on a mission of mercy, sir."

"Here?" Vader gestures toward the planet they're orbiting. "Even you cannot save Hutts, your Highness. Do not insult me with lies."

"I'm a diplomat." Organa has great dignity.

Even through pain.

"This planet wasn't our destination." She's pleading.

"Then you won't regret its loss."

She gasps as Tatooine becomes momentarily beautiful, then fades.

"Save Alderaan. Tell me where the plans are."

"I'm a diplomat," she says calmly.
